vacation fun

we got to play with a raccoon today!!! he is SOOOOOOOOOOOO cute!!!!!
i finally was brave enough to pick him up and if you blow on him he gives kisses.

this might be our next christmas card. the boys had SOOOOOOOOOO much fun!!! the raccoon is very good with the boys.

he almost seems like he would be a stuffed animal. this is my brother-in-law. my husband's brother. my hubby would NEVER be this close to a raccoon!! rocky is VERY sweet!!!:) hope you have a great day!

  3. awww! Heather, we used to have a pet raccoon "Fingers" for a while when I was a kid and it was soooooo much fun! We did have to let him go though when he got too big but he was the sweetest! He would tickle our faces to wake us up in the morning and loved to play! One time he got loose and some people about a mile away found him and put an ad in the paper for lost and found and when we got there to pick him up, he had totally shredded everything in their bathroom. ooops!

  5. That is amazing and very surprising! How on earth did they get him so tame? It looks like the kids are having so much fun! Thanks for sharing!

  6. What a cutie pie! Is the raccoon a pet, or just a very very tame wild animal?

  7. I'd LOVE a pet racoon, but i also want some pet caterpillars like Summersadie.
    I also have 2 cats ....hhhmmm.....so i guess it's maybe not such a great idea after all!
